IN To Murder Matt by Viveca Benoir, Matt was hated, wanted dead even. But that was to be expected as he was evil and nasty and abusive as well …so much so I wanted to murder him, and he is a character in a book!!….
Then I read Matt the beginning.. Raw, gritty dark and twisted is the tale of what made Matt Matt. Epic writing skills bring to life, the lies, loves and betrayal that molded Matt into what he became.
A book raw and edgy and filled with characters you will love to hate so much that you cannot put the book down and by the very end of the journey your jaw will be slack from the jaw dropping action and you will feel wrung out emotionally. The epic skills it took and the amazing mind that came up with this book is to be applauded.
NOTE this book is not for anyone under 18 or faint of heart

Where do I start ?

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000037_00034]
This isn’t one of my typical reads, and I took a chance after reading the warnings about being DARK and Twisted.
I actually decided to read this first, before To Murder Matt, and I’m glad I did.

It will have you messed up with emotion from heartbreak and feeling sad for Matt, to down right hating him and wanting to punch him out.
If your after a sweet read, than this isn’t the book for you.
There are situations that are difficult read and I had to step away a few times to take it all in.
But I was so drawn into the story, that I picked it up again after taking a very short break. I had to keep reading.
Can you be born with a cold heart?
Or can one only take so much pain, so many times being let down, that it’s just a matter of time until the heart doesn’t care about love anymore?

I have to say I really enjoyed the book, some parts not so much . I did follow on and read To Murder Matt, and I look forward to reading more from this Author…

Matt MTB 2
A friend and I were discussing what we were reading and I was between books even though I have a TBR list a mile long. She told me what she was reading and I asked what it was about. She told me the story was a bit dark and twisted. I replied that it sound wicked and I needed a change! You know the books are fantastic if you can’t wait to discuss them with your friend when you are both on two different time zones! So this brings me to this review. i have just completed a day and a half marathon reading Viveca Benoir’s books and I am absolutely hooked and in love with this author’s writing!!!! She has a flair for telling a story that just leaves you sitting theire with your jaw hanging open. I am still shaking my head. Viveca writes a tale that has the characters so intricately woven together it literally leaves you hanging to the end to piece the puzzles all together! I am still sitting here perplexed with how she does this!!! On the suggestion of my reading friend, I read this book first and it really made following the story easier for me. This book takes you back to the beginning of Matt’s story, starting with his birth, through his childhood, and beyond showing how he became so troubled. It showed us how he became the devil among us! Are we born with both evil and good in us? Does one prevail over the other depending upon how one is raised? How much pain and heartache can one experience before the heart turns black and unfeeling? This series is definitely not for everyone but I absolutely loved it! 5+ stars for me!!!!! The writing is extremely top notch and so creative. I need another book now!!!!!

Again, Viveca Benoir has given us another brilliant read. 5 Stars!

BFDU‘s review

What makes a man a monster?
A murderer?
A deviant?
A predator?
A maniac?
A psychopath?How does a young boy become any of those things?
How does he become so shut off from emotion that he considers nobody?
How does he lose his innocence?
How does he lose the ability to feel, to love?
How does he become cold and callous?

The Beginning is a novel that takes us into Matt’s life.

Julia MTBWe were introduced to Matt when we read To Murder Matt which we absolutely loved.
But in The Beginning we are taken back to Matt’s childhood and how he was ultimately moulded into the man he became.

Again Viveca Benoir has given us another brilliant read.
It’s dark, confronting, raw and again highly emotional and at times disturbing.
But we simply couldn’t put it down.

Again we cannot understand how this book is to be banned.
The content at times can be distressing and quite disturbing but why the decision was made to ban it stills leaves us dumbfounded.
And why????
There are two reasons for this…

1. Reading both To Murder Matt and
Matt -The Beginning, the author clearly explains that if at any time a reader should feel uncomfortable and unable to continue, simply put it down.
As readers we are not forced to read a novel, it’s a choice.

2. The subject matter in both novels while again at times graphic, disturbing and confronting, for us it is simply no different than picking up an autobiography with the same subject matter.

Again for us as bloggers/readers we just simply don’t understand the bureaucracy behind the decision.

To Viveca Benoir again thank you very much for giving us a heartbreaking read. Full of feeling and written with such depth we could feel the emotions throughout the pages. Congratulations on another amazing novel.

We look forward to reading more of your work and wish you all the very best.

For us a definite 5 star read.
